Artist's Description

June 19th 2008

Today I went to the funeral of Doris, an amazing 94 year old full of character and spark who kept her wonderful spirit and personality right to the end. I shall miss her and when thinking of a title for this photo taken in our recent fall of snow, the hymn sung at Doris’ funeral today seemed perfect.

I Believe
“I believe, for every drop of rain that falls, A flower grows….

I believe that somewhere in the darkest night, A candle glows….

I believe for everyone who goes astray,
Someone will come, to show the way,
I believe, I believe

I believe, above the storm the smallest prayer, Will still be heard…

I believe, that someone in the great somewhere, Hears every word….

Everytime I hear a newborn baby cry.
Or touch a leaf, or see the sky,
Then I know why, I believe."

I like the contrasts in this: the encouragement of the small and delicate pink blossom surviving the harshness of a late fall of bitterly cold snow and ice.
